A complete guide to starting Wedding Videography Melbourne as a business
Hello, friends. I am back with the part-3 of the series “A complete guide to starting Wedding Videography Melbourne as a business.” In the second article, I was explaining about the equipment you need to start the business. Let’s continue more on equipment so.
4) Editing software: What you captured on the wedding is the raw footage. You must edit the raw footage according to the style that the couple requested. Well, editing is a serious task, and you are a beginner, so you are not an editing expert. If your editing isn’t perfect, always get someone who can do it for you.
Editing is what makes Wedding Videos more interesting to watch. Apple’s Final Cut Pro X is a popular editing software in Wedding Videography Melbourne industry. Follow this link to know more about the Apple’s Final Cut Pro X (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Cut_Pro.) OK, it’s just an example of good editing software. Many editing tools are there for you to try. If you can’t decide what to use, speak to an expert in the industry.
5) Tripod, Monopod, and glide equipment: Without that equipment, no quality Wedding Videos. A tripod is an essential to start the business. As a beginner, your hands are too shaky to capture quality footages. Well, not only the beginners, even the experts use a tripod to avoid shaky hands effects. Apart from the tripod, you might need a monopod too. A tripod takes some space, so a monopod is your best friends when shooting in crowded places.
Well, I am not recommending a brand here, though. How about a gliding equipment? OK, you need one to capture the gliding shots. I am not explaining what’s a slider is here, but make sure you have one when starting your Wedding Videography Melbourne business.
6) Sound Gear: Another essential to start your business. A wedding Video would be incomplete without good audio quality. What’s the point of having crystal clear video, but poor sound quality? Well, some cameras record videos with a decent sound quality.
Anyway, getting the right sound quality is a nightmare for any videographer. The set up of a venue makes it even harder. You can use on-camera, and off-camera sound gears. Many videographer’s mic up the groom (it’s a good technique.)
OK, it’s going to be the end of equipment list. Well, I am going to give you some advice here. You are just starting Wedding Videography Melbourne as a business. You don’t need the latest gadgets in the beginning. Don’t spend money to buy all the latest equipment at this point. You must save the money to promote your business too. There’s no point of going after the latest equipment. Every month, an updated version will come out, so what you have is “outdated.”
If you don’t have enough money to but some items, just hire them. The basics are just enough to start your Wedding Videography Melbourne business. OK, if you are a “millionaire,” I know what you will do. Also, when you buy equipment, don’t focus on the most expensive stuff. A high price tag doesn’t always guarantee the best output. Buy equipment that gives you more for what you pay.
Well, that’s the end of part-3. The next part is very important to start the business, so follow me up.
